Emily-Rose is the proud owner of a double-barreled name and yes, she's heard of that movie. But you see, it's really not the same at all because that girl didn't have a hyphen it was both her first and last name and hey did you know Laura Linney and Tom Wilkinson both have starring roles but seriously what were they thinking they are so much better than that piece of garbage although have you actually seen the movie because Emily-Rose refuses to and NO she cannot perform exorcisms but will maybe attempt one if you bake her a pie.

Previously a writer for The Autobiography of Jane Eyre, Christina has returned to the Kalamatea writing room. Or rather, the writer’s room returned to Christina’s living room, thus allowing her to share the wealth of her gigantic stash of tea. Although the letter from Hogwarts has been tied up in Canada Post, she is assured that it will arrive any day now. Really. In the meantime, Christina is progressing in Karate. She has a BA in Writing from the University of Victoria. These days she hopes merely to survive the robot uprising.


kyle d'odorico

A recent graduate of the University of Victoria's writing program, Kyle is a filmmaker with a particular slant towards writing and cinematography. When he's not working on films, he's usually growing far too close to people far too quickly. He also picked up a habit of writing love poetry as a teenager (seriously). Don't ask to see them, though. He will read them to you when he drinks too much.
